Sponsor a Survivor

Why Sponsor a Survivor?

The destruction caused by landmines doesn’t end when the bomb detonates and the debris settles. Those who survive are left with life-altering injuries. Many landmine survivors cannot afford the treatment they need in order to move forward.

MLI’s Survivors’ Assistance program helps people, particularly children, who have been injured by mines by providing prostheses, rehabilitative treatment, vocational training in areas such as carpet weaving, embroidery and tailoring, and physicians’ training so doctors can become experts in the field of rehabilitation in their native, mine-affected countries. You can read more about survivors in specific countries and their stories here.

** (pictured to the left) Mohammad, a young boy in Yemen, lost his arms and eyesight in his left eye after accidentally picking up a landmine last year.  He was recently sponsored by the Laura J. Niles Foundation and the Parkinson family, and last month he received prosthetic arms and eye glasses.  Mohammad is incredibly excited to be able to have working arms again!  Read his “Word of Thanks” letter and see some new pictures of him sporting his new arms!
